If we eat sufficient raw fresh fruits and vegetables everyday we will not need as much water – drinking more water than we need to drains the body of many vitamins and minerals.
Fresh food births life. With some foods no cooking at all is BEST. Fresh food is alkaline. Eating fresh foods makes our body alkaline.
I suggest eating up to 80% of your food raw if possible, and lightly steam the rest. Your body will work less and receive more energy.
When food is cooked above 117 degrees Fahrenheit all the “food enzymes” are destroyed. “Food enzymes” are important for optimum health; they are supposed to aid in digestion and become active as soon as eating starts.
These enzymes are completely destroyed in cooking. And instead of aiding the body, they now are considered an enemy “toxin” to the body. This leads to the immune system sending white blood cells to fight off the invaders, thus weakening the immune system.
Cooked foods cause a build-up of toxins and waste material in many parts of the body, including within individual cells.
Cooked foods cause malnutrition at the cellular level. Because cooked foods are lower in nutrients, in addition to containing wastes and toxins, individual cells don’t receive enough of the nutrients they need.
Because of cooked foods, the immune system has to deal with the massive daily invasions of toxin and toxin by-products, eventually becoming overwhelmed and weakened. This is a key factor in aging.
Overall the natural aging process is accelerated by cooked food. People who switch to raw food often become biologically and visibly younger. Try it for yourself and experience this healthy way of life. We don’t want to just survive, but to thrive in life.
